Here are some Painter IX projects, sketches, and paintings I've been working on. Most of these are not finished (or just quick ideas) - just posting to post and share. Hope you enjoy - as always - crits are welcome

Simply Beautiful. Finish up those roughs!
Just wanted to show my activity - added a quick sketch/idea - also wanted to post again from some submits from last week.
Like the Geisha alot, something about its simplicity really grabs me. I agree about the anatomy, some things are wonky here and there. Keep studying.
Thanks Renegade_1 - Glad you like the Geisha

Thanks for the input DeJakhalz
I can't seem to get my arse in gear to go back and finish anything right now - just keep pushing forward - here is another painter / sketch (unfinished of course) - It's in the works -
Just some Pencil Work I have been doing on the side - One's of Roger Waters (don't ask - it was a good picture with shadows) - Another of some vodka add or something - some lady in an add and one of my Tree People projects.
Thought I would show my process when I have a pencil sketch idea and bring it into painter (building process)
*just started of course
*now if I can only finish it

Hello! Welcome to the forum.
You have a good start, though seem to have a little more confidence in pencil than you do in Painter. Don't let that discourage you from using it, though! I'm fairly new to the program myself (seriously trying to learn it for maybe 9 months?) and I figure out something new every time I open it.
Your photo referenced drawings are very strong as well, but be careful with anatomy, particularly when using foreshortening. Also, if you are drawing from your head, have reference photos for textures/positions/etc at hand, so if something looks wonky you can fix it. This will greatly help you with some of your other pieces.
Above all, don't be afraid to ask for a critique... and HAVE FUN!
Thanks for the crits and tips - yeah - pencil is home Although some of my pencil work is actually done in painter - I can't seem to bridge the gap between painting and drawing. I want that damn brush in my hand
I agree - painter is awesome and I find the same thing about learning something new everytime you open it - That program is a godsend. Nothing like smacking a painting down without mixing and breaking out the mineral spirits
Thanks for the foreshortening tip - yeah - I need to get more pictures for reference / positioning - it's one of my weak points - and I really need to do some anatomy training again. (art school was looong ago) Hands, feet, body balance, all that good stuff needs to be revisited.
*I checked out your sketchbook - very cool - you got mad skills - and I really dig the photoshop/painter stuff - you got a great style - love the faces - strong building techniques and I really loved the angles. Great stuff! *Good imagination too! Very refreshing
Thanks again for crits - I'll have to keep an eye on your stuff and hope to have more posted for you to check out soon as well
a good site to find good reference photos for just about anything is www.gettyimages.com It's all stock photography, but I find it extremely useful (if you can get over the sometimes inconvenient watermarks)... much better than Google images!!
Holy crap! You ROCK! This is WAY better than google images!
Seriously - Thank you!
This is just a painter pic from photo reference - nothing fancy - just trying to keep practicing

Not trying to jump around too much - I love to start stuff and never finish Here is a quick foot study - thought it was an interesting perspective and liked the shadows - unfinished (as usual) - but just posting to keep up the posting
Thanks LadyHydralisk Yeah that stuff can get boring sometimes
*I checked out your work by the way - you got some cool stuff! Love the colors and you have some really good angles with your work. I Dig it - keep it up! Look forward to seeing more!
hey man, i love that smooshed foot!
Thanks zeitgeist! I really want to try drilling down and getting all detailed on it (We'll see - I'm like a hyperactive kid in a room of shiny objects
Hey, checked out your sketchbook too - you got mad skills - Really like your style! Great expressions and some very original stuff - awesome - keep em coming!
Worked the tattoos on her arms, finished hair and smoothed out colors and shading.
*I think this is a girl from LA ink or something* Liked the shadows and tattoos. Photo reference wasn't really high rez so some of the tats were hard to decipher. -- Anyway - enough babble - had a lot of fun working on this piece. They are never done, but enough to leave it alone for a while

Just screwing around - it was late - I had some beer... nuff said
Getting back to my "Tree People" (slash) Fae - theme I enjoy visiting from time to time - Just a rough rough sketch to get the ball rolling
Spent WAAY too much time messing with face and all that other stuff Too easy to get distracted messing with certain aspects or parts. Anyway - tried too many times trying to drill down into this one. Leaving alone for the night before I scrap the sucker

Just another quick sketch for ideas
Just a new project I'm working on - watched "Mirror Mask" on TV earlier and it blew my imagination out of the water - it was just awesome.
Anyway, here's a picture that popped in my head while watching. I'm trying to get back to this and drill down for more details before shelving.
